8 months old baby
hey i m a c-section mom and breastfed my baby for nearly 2 yrs :) so i havent heard this one. but am tagging our expert :) Sonali Shivlani pls advise!
Srirupa Sen, mine was c-section and nurse handed over my kid as soon as i reached my room. And she helped me to feed my baby the colostrum. But wait. Are you still pregnant? If thats the case please dont you ever think about c-section. All the best dear😊
my personal experience ,I delivered through c sec..half hr later nurse held my baby near breast n she sucked..even if it's fr 5 mins it's OK..next few days were horrible ..need well experienced family members but should not give up..I ve never fed her FM till now..she has completed 20 months..try fr normal delivery dear
hi dear, only 9 weeks pregnant and worrying about breastfeeding after c-section? relax and enjoy your pregnancy dear... and try to aim for normal delivery...
thank u ladies for answering my apprehension...i know its just 9 weeks but since i am reading about the pros and cons of C section i wanted to ask the experienced lot!
srirupa, eat a healtht diet in your pregnancy and be active... drink 3 ltrs. water daily... these will help you a lot...
Even after s c section it is ok to breast feed. You need lots of help to latch the baby on but that's fine. The medication does not affect the breast milk. If adequate Stimulation is provided breast milk post s c section is the same as post a vaginal birth. The baby will also get the colostrum as it does not get affected due to a c section.
It is infact positive that you are already thinking about breast feeding. It's one of the best things for both mom and baby and the more information and knowledge you have the easier it is.
Thank you Sonali Shivlani maam for your encouraging words
